NanGate Solution Improves Fujitsu Semiconductor’s IP Development Productivity and SoC Design Performance.
SUNNYVALE, Calif.-- October 18, 2011 --NanGate, the leading supplier of Electronic Design Automation (EDA) solution for digital cell library development and design optimization, today announced that Fujitsu Semiconductor Limited has adopted NanGate’s Library Creator, a comprehensive tool set that enables efficient creation and validation of digital cells, and NanGate Design Optimizer, an IC analysis and post-route optimization tool, into its advanced 28nm design environment.
With Fujitsu Semiconductor’s strong focus on accelerating 28nm design projects and their need to support process variants, Fujitsu Semiconductor has concluded a successful evaluation of NanGate’s solution. “Fujitsu Semiconductor’s business growth depends on our continuous improvement in design development quality and efficiency. We are impressed with the effectiveness of NanGate’s solution to automate generation of large sets of complex cells, and the ability to improve the quality of design performance,” said Hiroshi Ikeda, Director of System LSI Technology & Product Department, Technology Development Division, IP & Technology Development and Manufacturing Unit of Fujitsu Semiconductor Limited. “We expect to leverage these strengths for our critical design development with various advanced process technologies.”
Qualified for 28 nm technology and below, NanGate’s Library Creator tool set was designed to handle complexity of advanced process technology while delivering an automated and integrated solution for custom cell development. With Library Creator, designers can control and alter the individual attributes of digital library cells, to make precise adjustments and automate to create extended cell variants. Combined with the Design Optimizer, which has the ability to utilize large extended cell set in its unique optimization technology, NanGate solution fits seamlessly into existing EDA flow yet delivering much improved results.
“Being selected by Fujitsu Semiconductor to enable their critical designs in advanced process technologies underscores the significance of NanGate solutions,” said Kevin Bushby, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at NanGate. “We are committed to continue our collaboration with Fujitsu Semiconductor and help them delivering superior results more efficiently and effectively.”
NanGate, a provider of physical intellectual property(IP) and a leader in Electronic Design Automation (EDA) software, offers tools and services for creation and validation of physical library IP, and analysis and optimization of digital design. NanGate’s suite of solutions includes Library Creation Platform, NanGate Design Optimizer, MegaLibrary IP, and professional services. NanGate's solution enables IC design to optimize in performance and power, while significantly reducing area and cost.
